BLURB

I take great pride in my job you know, I like to get down in the crevices and inspect for dust. It gives me great satisfaction to make sure everything is clean and tidy, I like nothing more than to see my own reflection in this vase, and then I know I’ve done a really good job. I like to get down on all fours and take a dusty exterior and elevate it to a higher place. It’s an amazing work out; all that stretching and flexing, I often get a bit hot under this dress. Now I’ve got my routine down to absolute perfection, I’m pretty sure I can do it with my eyes closed. So yeah, just between you and me… sometimes I like to let things get a bit dirty, leave it a day or two. Just so I can get in there and give it a real good dust. Well they do say job satisfaction is one of the keys to happiness. [Kim Shillam]
